The Giro D’Italia was in Piedmont earlier this weekend which was an ideal excuse to crack open something local !
The 2012 Freisa from Vajra was rich, dense, chewy and delicious. And as serious and ageworthy as many a Barolo.
The Freisa D’Asti will be broached later as a comparison. Hopefully it will be as good, or better, than the impressive 2012 tried last year.
The Bulgarian wine offers an amazing amount of flavour and complexity for £8.25. Characterful and food friendly, its weight, balance, texture brought to mind another wine TWS list, namely, Guillemot-Michel’s wonderful Vire-Clesse Quintaine. That’s £21 however.
Have a lovely long weekend everyone.
